Libra ♎ January 2021 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


We are all benefiting from the major reset that has taken place, making 2021 a different year to 2020 but there is no doubt that you have won the cosmic lottery. It was just before Christmas that Saturn and Jupiter returned to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart but also a fellow Air ruled part. This means that Jupiter and Saturn, the two most powerful planets in the solar system have not only shifted their focus onto matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative but are operating under the same system as your natural default.

This also means that at some point before leaving in 2023 Saturn will form a friendly aspect to the natal Sun of every Libran on the planet. This is one planet that you want on your side and that hasn’t been the case over the last three years. It is even better news with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion racing through in just five months. Jupiter is normally here for 12 months and it is a given that he will form a friendly aspect to every Libran on the planet’s natal Sun at some point during the year he is here. Instead, if it hasn’t happened already it will happen between now and May.

This not only opens up life to a new era where there is a lot of support, compatible energy and focus on matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative but a relief from some of the pressure, demands and duties of recent years. If you work in the creative or artistic fields then this will be a stunning year and also an important year for anyone thinking of starting a family, getting engaged or anything that gives birth to something that springs from love or the heart. Life will still have demands but the heavyweights of the solar system will carry much of the load for you this month and this just a taste of things to come.

LoveLibra January 2021 Love Horoscope

From the moment you move into 2021, it is clear that something has changed and that when it comes to matters of the heart there is no denying that this is now front of mind. It was just before Christmas that Saturn and Jupiter returned to your romantic sector within days of each other, bringing them together here for the first time in six decades. While they are already starting to move apart after a grand alignment during their early days here, this is a formidable team that will shape the coming year. Jupiter is racing ahead and will move through the full length of your romantic sector in May, something that will normally take 12 months.

Jupiter will then retrograde back in towards and the end of July, where he will spend another five months, making the first and the last five months of 2021 some of the luckiest for love in decades. It is when Venus returns early next month that the real magic will happen as the planets of love and luck come together. On the other hand, Saturn is here now until 2023 and as the Sun and the faster planets return each year, he will be the constant force keeping matters of the heart and all things romantic on track. That first encounter will come when Mercury returns to your romantic sector on 9th January and the Sun on 20th January.

The Sun will always turn the solar spotlight onto matters of the heart at this time of year and Mercury will return at around the same time to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. While the Sun is only here for a month, sensing how important this is, instead of moving through in 14 to 15 days as he normally would, Mercury is here now until March. It is a retrograde turn on 31st January that will keep Mercury here with Venus, the planet of love returning just two days later. Meanwhile, until leaving your relationship sector on 7th January, Mars will continue to fight for what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.

MoneyLibra January 2021 Money Horoscope

To begin with, there will be little if any difference between what you leave behind in 2020 and what you find as you move into 2021. Uranus is still in retrograde motion and on his own in your financial sector and Venus and Juno’s departure from your income sector just before Christmas has left it empty. While there will be no more planetary activity on the income front until later in the year, leaving as late in the year as they did, this allows you to begin this new professional year with a lucrative sense of direction, especially on the job front. This is something already baked in and when work and job matters start to move, which they will next month, the money will follow.

However, it is on the other side of the financial fence that there is going to be movement this month and in a fairly dramatic way. Uranus’ direct turn on 14th January was always going to take the brakes off money matters and allow you to focus on where you are going rather than on where you have been. However, it is a week earlier that money matters will get a boost when Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos finally returns to your financial sector on 7th January. Mars should have returned last August and was just degrees away when he began slowing down and then eventually turned retrograde.

For two months, between September and November 2020, Mars was moving away from rather than towards your financial sector so will be ready to make up for lost time when he finally returns. Mars will normally spend six weeks fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit and encouraging a more assertive approach, declaring war on money matters. However, still not up to full speed after his retrograde phase, Mars returns on 7th January but won’t leave until March, giving you plenty of time to take your financial power back.

CareerLibra January 2021 Career Horoscope

While this could be a fairly quiet start to your professional year, for all the right reasons and in all the right ways. The Moon is just leaving your career sector as we move into the New Year and while it will be gone by New Year’s Day, this will allow you to begin the year with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. However, there is an important reason why you need to hold onto this, the valuable clues, hunches and insights and the momentum created and is because this was no ordinary visit. As you move into the New Year the Moon is just wrapping up the last Full Moon of 2020 and the last in your career sector until 2022.

Much of what is triggered by a Full Moon takes until the Moon comes full circle to play out and it can often be the next visit that yields the most potential. That will happen when the Moon returns from 26th January to 28th January, a visit that might do more than just fuel your professional instincts and imagination. As was the case with its visit to your career sector late last month, the Moon will move into a friendly aspect to Neptune and Ceres in your work sector as it moves through, giving you an intuitive read on both job and career matters.

It is on the job front that there is a chance to take things slowly and to spend time getting your bearings before the pace picks up next month. At the start of the year, Neptune has only been in direct motion for just over a month and still barely moving, there is a chance to look to the future with confidence without rushing into it. This gives Neptune time to slowly increase speed before the Sun returns next month, which is when the busiest months of 2021 on the job front will begin. This is also a chance to make the most of the dwarf planet Ceres’ last full month in your work sector and of her mission to update your needs and priorities, especially when it comes to job satisfaction and a sense of purpose. The Moon’s return to your work sector from 16th January to 18th January will give you a chance to check in.
